World Series to get me around to it I sat in on the first two games at Milwau kee andalmos t felt sorry for Casey Stengel and his inept Yan kees my first loyalty was to the Chicago White Sox Then it shifted to the Chicago Cubs But since the Boston Braves took up residence at County Stadium in Milwaukee Ive been a Braves follower not what could be called a rabid fan but a most interested follower shall we say This years opener which saw Warren Spahn against the Yank lefthander Whitey Ford was the first World Series game I had seen since about 1932 when the Cubs squared off against the Philadelphia Athletics That was an opener too a historymak ing game Im learning now At the last minute Connie Mack changed pitchers Advance stories said he would use a fastbailer but the crafty old

Extend Truce on Quemoy Action Lauded by US WASHINGTON W President Eisenhower h a i 1 e d as good news Sunday Red Chinas exten sion of the Quemoy ceasefire for two more weeks He pledged the United Stateswould vvork for a negotiated settlement of the For mosa Strait problem US officials predicted that American forces inthe Formosa area will be reduced if the cease fire holds up long enough to show good faith on Red Chinas part in not resuming the attack Peipings announcement the ceasefire is being extended could mean the Quemoy crisis is over Certainly Washington authorities said much of the tension has dis appeared THERE WAS much less cer tainty here about the actual pros pects for any kind of successful USRed Chinese negotiations The announcement by Peiping ra dio said pointedly that in continu ing the ceasefire and permitting a buildup of Nationalist supplies on Quemoy the Communists are trying to draw a clear cut line between the Chinese and the Americans Eisenhowers

thoughts about the opposing team EVER SINCE Milwaukee began turning out en masse to see its baseball team in action Ive been wondering about one question Would there be such support if the Braves were a second division club Thats been the situation at both Baltimore and Kansas City othernew homes for major league baseball teams After spending three days in the city where I had my first job after getting out of the Univer sity I was a police reporter on the Milwaukee Im pretty well nvinced that Mil waukee wiil not be found want ing even if its baseball team should fall from its lofty perch a thing thats almost as inevit able as tomorrows sun Between games during my time in Milwaukee I was privileged to visit with some of the nations foremost sports writers Among these were Davis Walsh for many years head of sports for the Hearst news services and Red Smith whose literary style stamps him No 1 among the cur rent crop of sports writers MORE THAN A FEW of these men who live with sports ex pressed some real concern about the future of baseball They were wondering where the Mickey Mantles and Henry Aarons of the future were going to be found All the emphasis one of them pointed out is now being put on the major leagues more than that on the top teams CONTINUED ON PAGE 2 of the 8th US District Court of Appeals in St Louis not to use National Guard troops again to interfere with
